Building the next generation PMO to deliver quality outcomes through and beyond COVID-19

ONLINE: 24 February 2021

Following Government guidelines on COVID-19 safety standards and protocols we have shifted this event to an online experience. 

The ongoing pandemic has forced organisations to innovate, manage risk and adapt quickly to drive project success. PMOs today face the biggest challenges in: 
  • Delivering projects and programs in an increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous environment  
  • Becoming more strategic by supporting the board in re-evaluating projects against organisational goals 
  • Leveraging technology to create more visibility for all project stakeholders
  • Building resilient and remote project teams 
Join your industry peers at the PMO Leadership Roadshow 2021 to discuss the future of Project Management and how to successfully communicate your PMO’s value as a critical, collaborative, and strategic function in a new reality operating environment. 
Our program has been developed with industry leaders to address how you can help your organisation achieve strategic objectives in today’s rapidly changing business environment. In just one day, get the latest PMO trends and insight, share your experiences, and network with industry colleagues.
